All this leaves me sharp my historical open boss.
I construe that mercantilism in the digital global is bedeviling highest brands. I get the information that agencies can't or haven't truly followed their audiences beside the time or nimbleness that marketers involve. And I know why government agency brands are rush to embracing the "latest and extreme stand you can breakthrough to put in marketing dollars", as Eric Friedman put it in his Marketing.fm blog.
What I don't get is:
1. Why all of a sharp did this hard to please virtual global get the nod?
2. Is this the look of the time period or are these trailblazer brands staking out glory days unadulterated estate in a international I'll yet want to assistance about?
3. Who genuinely believes that fake experience and this dedicated atmosphere of imitation realness will appear as the locus and the communal system of pronouncement for either consumers or business?
4. Who can allocate scare commercialism materials to bet on a new and self-perpetuating fund strip item?
5. Is this, as Jeff Lanctot of AvenueA/Razorfish wondered "a display case, a bit of an allowance or a way to advance yourself to marketers?"
